Blink-182 have announced new 2024 North American tour dates.

The next US leg of their world tour will kick off in June with 30 extra dates and they have promised “new production elements”.

The show will feature increased seat capacity and a full 360-degree view of the stage for fans.

The band announced the news on an Instagram story, which also revealed that support acts will include Pierce The Veil, Alexisonfire, Astronoid, Drain, Ekkstacy, Hot Milk, Jxdn, Landon Barker and Live Without.

They will kick off the tour in Orlando on June 20 and end in Toronto on August 15.

Following the North American leg of the tour, the band will travel to the UK and Ireland for some international dates.

International dates had previously proved tricky after drummer Travis Barker refused to fly again after being involved in a crash in 2008 which killed four people.

However, in August 2021, he flew to Cabo San Lucas with his now-wife Kourtney Kardashian who he praised for "healing" himself and his family.

He told The Los Angeles Times: "I think the power of love really helped me. Kourt made it so I fly, my kids fly now. She healed us.

"It takes a little piece of my life every time I fly. The amount of stress and anxiety it causes is just unbearable.

"It brings up all this old trauma, and sometimes I’m like, ‘Is this worth it?’ But I don’t like anything having a hold on me, either — I don’t like being afraid, and I don’t like having things from my past control my future.”
